first snow

Guess what? We got our first glimpse of snow overnight! To some it may sound horrifying- snow in mid October but to this Michigan native it's a welcome blast of cold air that I'm hoping will kill off the fruit flies and calm mine and Lucy's allergies. In honor of the cold and cozy weather I've got this recipe going in the crockpot right now for dinner tonight.

Last Friday on a whim I decided to surprise the kids with a chalkboard wall. Now that Gray is getting bigger and wanting to do more things with his sister the little one we had just wasn't cutting it anymore. The kids were thrilled and it's been keeping them busy at crucial times like when I'm trying to make dinner- the reason I chose a spot just off the kitchen. It's also fun to see what Lucy decides to draw. My favorite so far is the one she made of our family walking our dog, Trixie. I sat one night after dinner and had some coffee while she drew it. She was saying things like "Does daddy have a big head?" and "everybody gets a smile and a yeesh (leash)" I love that kid to pieces.


  1. I so love your life.
    Also, Silas needs a chalkboard wall. STAT. He is currently using our entire home as a marker board. :/

    1. Trust me, not a perfect system! But at least when he writes on walls/furniture it's just chalk now and wipes off unlike the crayons.
